Ulmer Expands Respected Immigration Practice with Addition of Former Federal Judicial Law Clerk

Ulmer & Berne LLP is pleased to announce the addition of Associate Allison S. Hall to its Immigration Law Group. Hall joins Ulmer from the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan where she served as a Judicial Law Clerk to U.S. District Judge Judith E. Levy.

Hall focuses her practice on immigration law and assists with all areas of immigration, visa, citizenship, consular practice, and removal defense. In her role as a Judicial Law Clerk, Hall gained experience in the litigation process in civil and criminal cases. She also previously served as an intern in the Immigration Legal Services Department of Jewish Family & Community Services in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where she assisted refugees by drafting immigration petitions and applications for permanent residency and other immigration benefits.

“We’re happy to welcome Allison to Ulmer, where she will support our clients in navigating an ever-changing maze of immigration law and policies to achieve their goals,” said David W. Leopold, Chair of Ulmer’s Immigration Law Group. “Her understanding of federal litigation, strong writing skills, and immigration experience make her a great addition to our team.”

A three-time alumna of the University of Pittsburgh, Hall received her undergraduate degree in political science and French, her master’s degree in social work, and her law degree with a global studies certificate in cultural dynamics. In law school, she served as a Senior Research Editor of the Law Review and received the David Stahl Memorial Award as the student with the highest GPA in her graduating class.
